‘Why Obi, Atiku Failed To Defeat Tinubu In Supreme Court’ – Dumebi Kachikwu

by Victor Ndubuisi

The leader of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Dumebi Kachikwu, has disclosed the reasons behind the Supreme Court defeat of Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and Peter Obi, the candidate of the Labour Party (LP).

As previously reported by Anaedoonline.ng, the Supreme Court dismissed Atiku and Obi’s cases against President Bola Tinubu on Thursday.

President Tinubu was declared the victor of the presidential election held on February 25, 2023 by the Supreme Court.

Speaking about the court’s decision, Kachikwu claimed that Tinubu did not win the 2023 presidential election and that Obi and Atiku were defeated because they were unable to provide concrete proof of their claims.


In an interview with TVC News, Kachikwu stated that the presidential candidates’ lawyers chose to rely on technicalities in an attempt to overturn the election because they had no evidence to gather.

He said, “I believe that’s the hardest part of a lawyer’s job in garnering relevant facts, gathering evidence especially when there’s no evidence to gather. That was the hardest job for the lawyers who took this case to court. How do you gather something that is not there for you to gather?

“Since there was nothing for them to gather, they then looked at technicalities on social media, the court of public opinion. Everywhere they went, they pushed technicalities, they pushed hearsay, they pushed rumours because there was really no evidence to gather.

“If you say that you won in this place, show the proof. They could not do that, they knew they could not do that, it was very very clear to them from the beginning. So, they sought to just focus on the fact that INEC had technical issues, they sought to focus on other technicalities all in a bid to upturn the election.”
